Hello, I can assist you with this. I will just need to know if hired what you as a call center manager plan on accomplishing in the first 30, 60, and 90 days. I will then set up the formatting and suggest some additional ideas.

30, 60, 90 DAY CALL CENTER PLAN

*Set monthly staff rapport meetings to assess goals and recognize successes

 

MARKET/ANALYSIS FOCUS (if applicable)

 

Determine internal and external needs based on analysis

  • - Current Revenue Flow
  • - Training Expenditures
  • - Call Center Budget
  • - Staff capacity and needs

TRAINED STAFF IF NEEDED CONSIDER:

Self-study programs that they can do on their own . Customized training to meet needs of staff and industry/organization

Asynchronous training programs that can be completed independently and do not require everyone to be together in a group to complete

Ensure validation or verification of training completion with a certification plan or testing evaluation.

Are all staff trained and familiar with all communications methods such as email, fax, and the web, to communicate with the customer.

  • - how to respond when an immediate response is not required.
  • - Written communication is very different than oral communication and has to be handled much more carefully. As an example, voice inflection, humor, and insinuations should be avoided in writing, whereas on the phone they might be readily accepted.

Determine Call Center Issues/Evaluate Call Center Effectiveness

Determine the best ways of evaluating call center effectiveness through

Simulation

Customer feedback

Call monitoring

For outbound, are they hitting their numbers?

Increase in productivity

How independent is staff? Once trained, how often do they come back to supervisor for help? If it happens continually, there would seem to be a learning or training problem.

Track Customer Satisfaction & Responses

Periodically review e-mail logs and responses issued by staff.

Monitor Calls

Are all the incoming inquiries being responded to? Is there a backlog

What is average response time

Are staff responding professionally, efficiently and effectively

Change Management

Change management communications to prepare all personnel for the upcoming change. Ensuring employee "buy-in" is a key factor

Needs analysis to determine which business processes are changing and how it will affect people's jobs

Documentation of those business processes to standardize and give everyone a common vision

Training on the new business processes.

Determine support of the change.

Staff Reinforcement

Helping employee to determine their personal goals and objectives in alignment with call center goals and objective , then help them to meet those goals through training and positive feedback.

Determine if there is a high turnover rate - Is turnover rate more than 60%?

Focus on employee satisfaction through communication, feedback, training, and praise to decrease overall turnover rate. If necessary implement self-paced training with modular programs that can be completed during downtime or slow periods. This will help keep employees on the job during high activity times while also recapturing the value of low productivity downtime. Employees can maximize their productivity while they are learning.
